Nelson wins PL2 Player of the Month

Reiss Nelson has been rewarded for his impressive start to the season by picking up the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award for August.

The 17-year-old has already scored five times in just three games, with braces in wins over Derby County and Manchester City and a goal against Liverpool.

Nelson beat off competition from seven other contenders to win the award, having been chosen by a panel from the Premier League Football Development Department.

Reiss was nominated for the award by the managers of our opponents so far this season.

Congratulations to Reiss on his award.
